      Man charged with homicide appears in court

      Mug shot of Jacques Earl Carpenter

      The man charged with homicide in Ishpeming appeared in court on Monday morning.

      Jacques (Jack) Earl Carpenter, 52, is charged with homicide, open murder, unlawful imprisonment, and assault with a dangerous weapon.

      The charges Carpenter faces are from an incident that occurred in Ishpeming on Friday. Officers responded to the scene of a shooting at a residence in Ishpeming. When they arrived, they found that one man had been shot dead.

      The person who was found dead has been identified as 29-year-old David Scott Meyer, Jr. Authorities believe Meyer and Carpenter were having an argument before the shooting.

      Carpenter will be back in court for a preliminary hearing on June 21 at 3:45 p.m.
